These three musicians have placed themselves under the protection of the Egyptian goddess Nut, the one who protects the earth, goddess of life who swallows the sun each evening to give it back to the world the next morning. It is first of all a formidable impulse of life which presided over the destiny of the trio Nut. A desire to have fun, to dance, after the isolation due to the confinement. They are three: Delphine Joussein (flute), Rafaëlle Rinaudo (electric harp) and Blanche Lafuente (drums). A trio of women in jazz? Rather rare.
But their appetite and their combined musical experiences, because they are all three experienced artists, will bring them to other territories, metal rock, garage or even downright punk. Delphine Joussein, the flutist, does not hide it: one of her models is Ian Anderson, the brilliant instrumentalist of Jethro Tull who made his flute groove like never before in the 70s. But there is also Rafaëlle Rinaudo’s amazing and very learned harp, capable of furious flights of fancy, and Blanche Lafuente’s relentless typing, a multi-talented artist, well-versed in improvisation.
In September 2021, the trio Nout is launched in the form of an EP (five titles) very noticed. The pile-up of styles miraculously comes together in a new form, which constantly changes to leave all the room for emotions. We are impatiently waiting for them on stage.
Concert proposed as part of Jazz Migration, a support program for emerging jazz and improvised music musicians led by AJC, with the support of the French Ministry of Culture, the BNP Paribas Foundation, the SACEM, the ADAMI, the SPEDIDAM, the CNM, the SCPP, the SPPF, and the Institut Français.
